"Thank you for the lovely retreat. I learned so much and you've given me a new impetus for my yoga practice. It was such a great and supportive atmosphere."

North India Yoga Retreat at the Basunti Private Retreat Centre

With Duncan Hulin and Andrea Guest

Basunti is an idyllic private lakeside retreat centre, set on a promontory in a nature reserve nestling in the foothills of the great Indian Himalaya. It is situated in the state of Himachal Pradesh in North India and surrounded by the waters of the Maharana Pratap Sagar. It sits at the heart of a wildlife reserve and has been developed sympathetically in accord with the local environment. Note, all twin rooms include a private balcony. As well as the opportunity for swimming in the lake, there is also a first class swimming pool and beautiful luscious, landscaped gardens.
